Both communities lost due to the language issue PDF Print E-mail
Minister of youth affairs Dallas Alahapperuma, addressing the Youth Council federation meeting in Batticaloa dist, stated that the Sinhala community is lost in front of the Tamil language while the Tamil community is lost in front of the Sinhala language.

He also said that when Sinhalese people learn Tamil they also become familiar with the traditions of Hinduism and when Tamil people learn Sinhala they get familiar with Buddhist traditions that would make co-existence very easy.

He also added that the real war criminals are certain rulers in this country that spread the germs of hatred while ruling the country for more than 50 years and if they ever bothered to allow the communities to learn each other’s language the fire that drenched our motherland with so much blood would never have flared up.
